Owl Fever

It's an owl fever out there...
...and I'm guilty of being part of it! ;)

Owls are fascinating creatures, nocturnal hunting birds with eyes that can look deep into your soul. They are intelligent, sharp, mysterious and avid hunters, that have enchanted us all.

But it seems that we have been fascinated with them since forever! :) If you do a google search, you will find that in ancient times, the owl was a symbol attributed to Athena, the Greek goddess of wisdom and strategy.

Native Americans attributed owls with wisdom and sacred knowledge.

In other cultures, the owl was believed to be the keeper of spirits who had passed from one plane to another, this gave the owl a dark & mysterious symbolism.

During medieval times, it was believed that owls were actually witches and wizards in disguise, or that they were related.

Today, the owl is often used as a symbol for education & knowledge... 

...What does an owl mean for you?
...Are you too, under their spell? :)

I love owls, making them in clay, is something I truly enjoy. Having people love my original owl designs, and making them one of my best seller pieces, is awesome! :) 


These owls are part of ClayCatShop's new anniversary line. One of them will be a prize for our anniversary giveaway, that will take place in mid September. Follow ClayCatShop for details and news.
